Crown Chakra Tune-Up Practice. Śīrṣāsana (आसन, Āsana) = pose, posture, seat. #shirshasana शीर्षासन, Śīrṣāsana = #headstand .. Integration of your entire being from head to toe experience plus a vast connection between your innermost self an all of life. ✨
Enlightened moments can spring forth at any time, as yoga practice is good to open you to the possibility and prime you to witness those moments of grace sprinkled throughout your day.
Working toward enlightenment may seem unrealistic, or completely beyond the scope of your radar. But regardless of whether you practice yoga to stay fit and healthy or to work toward complete liberation, do not miss the opportunity to practice of insight and positive action.
It is this integration to experience a vast connection between your innermost self and all life.
The Aries Full Moon asks us to gather our courage, make peace with our past, tap into our truest desires, and then leap into action.
A Full Moon offers the potential for integrating two opposites; this current cycle is about integrating balance (Libra) and from this state of mental harmony, taking spontaneous action (Aries).
Lift yourself out of whatever dilemma or decision that is present. Step back, breathe, a diamond of clarity is available. A new and spontaneous perspective can be yours.
Aries Full Moon squares Pluto and this can lead to compulsive and destructive behavior as deeply buried feelings are exposed. It is difficult to control such intense emotions or reactions. Power struggles with authority figures, family or partners are possible and you or they may become quite ruthless. Relationship challenges can be turned into an opportunity to transform and evolve.
Gather your courage, tap into confidence, and from a secure and balanced center, make your move. This is a chance to let go and get out of whatever mental game of ping-pong and take action.
To take action, align with what you desire and choose it.
Full Moons bring a high-energetic release that may feel like a celebration. As this Moon, Sun, and Mercury also point towards Pluto, this formation triggers deep dives into the shadow of our psyche, cathartic healing, and transformation.
Release the past and welcome the future so you can move through this Full Moon in a way that’s empowered and decisive.
Above all, don’t worry about what anyone else needs. Cultivate a balanced Libran mind … so that you can make the decisions you need to step closer to yourself. This gives your Aries “I am” experience an opportunity to prosper.

There’s not a day that goes by where I’m not putting on my clothes, shoes, or brushing my teeth, where I just think about the ordinary lives of, people who just went to have fun at a concert, or the ordinariness of the day from people on 9/11, who were just doing an ordinary thing, and then you never get home.
These days of tragedy and crisis are to remind us all to be present in the ordinariness of our lives, that actually turns out to be extraordinary, when the person you love doesn’t come home at night.
I pay attention to things, when I need to and this is to make us all more enlightened and awaken about our own life, and the fact that it shows up this way is a nightmare. But, as I overheard someone say, seeing people coming together, helping each other — whether it’s this crisis we’re in or what we saw weeks ago in, in Houston, in Florida, and now in Puerto Rico — it shows the human collective of us all. It’s an opportunity to show the best of ourselves, when the worst shows up.
At Mandalay Bay casino the gunman had a device to turn a rifle into a rapid-fire weapon and at least one of the rifles the gunman had in his hotel suite was outfitted with a bump stock, a device that would enable it to fire hundreds of rounds per minute. Bump stocks are legal and inexpensive, with some versions advertised for $99. A standard stock is firmly fixed to the rifle. But a bump stock allows the body of the rifle to slide a short distance back and forth, harnessing the recoil energy of each shot. The shooter does not move the trigger finger; instead, the weapon bounces, or bumps, rapidly between shoulder and finger.
In 2013, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California proposed outlawing bump stocks, but Congress has not acted on her proposal. She proposed a ban again today on Tuesday.
Survivors had described the scene on Sunday in vivid detail: Thousands of people screaming and running for cover at an outdoor music festival as victims fell around them. Mr. Paddock stationed himself in a 32nd-floor luxury suite of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino and fired into a crowd of thousands of people. Law enforcement found Mr. Paddock dead in his room at the hotel.
Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said that Mr. Paddock placed cameras inside and outside of his hotel suite. The federal authorities said there were no indications that Mr. Paddock had ties to any international terrorist organization, despite a claim of responsibility by the Islamic State.
Mr. Paddock worked for the federal government for roughly 10 years, from 1975 to 1985, a spokeswoman for the federal Office of Personnel Management confirmed.
Investigators unearthed multiple job applications, with Mr. Paddock’s fingerprints on file, as part of records reflecting his employment as a letter carrier for the Postal Service; as an I.R.S. agent; and as an auditor of defense contracts.
Mr. Paddock and his three brothers were raised by their mother, who told the children their father had died when in fact he was in prison, Eric Paddock said. Mr. Paddock’s father was convicted in 1961 of committing a series of bank robberies and was sentenced to 20 years in prison. He escaped from La Tuna federal prison in Texas in 1968 and became a used-car dealer and bingo parlor operator in Oregon.
The police estimated that when the shooting began, there were 22,000 people at the Harvest Festival, listening to Jason Aldean, the final act of the three-day event.
Video of the shooting captured nine seconds of continuous, rapid fire, followed by 37 seconds of silence from the weapon and panicked screaming from the crowd. Gunfire then erupted again and again in extended bursts. Some concertgoers thought the noise was fireworks, but as it became clear what was happening, people fled, many of them unsure where the shots were coming from, or where they should go.
Our hearts goes out to everyone involved and our condolences to the 59 families who lost loved ones and over 500 victims who were wounded in Sunday’s (Oct. 1) massacre at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas. Continue to keep the faith.
